INTRODUCTION: Clear cell hydradenoma is known by various other names such as nodular hidradenoma, eccrine acrospiroma, and solid-cystic hidradenoma.
3 Mostly, RCC with cutaneous metastases are clear cell type, so microscopic differential diagnosis are xanthoma, xanthelasma, sebaceous tumours, balloon cell nevus, clear cell hydradenoma and other skin lesions characterized by the presence of clear cells.
